Advertisements are an important part of business used mainly to generate leads. LinkedIn is a platform that specifically targets business professionals to network and connect. The question is: What is the best way to market your business using LinkedIn?
The first step is to know the difference between a business and personal profile. If you are the owner of a company, you should have both. Similar to a website, your company profile showcases your brand. When others find it, it should quickly answer the questions of who you are and what you specialize in. Make sure your profile is always up to date! Your personal profile is all about you. Your accomplishments, recommendations, career focus and experiences. Differentiating the two helps when it comes time to plan your marketing strategies.
Planning your marketing strategy is where LinkedIn ads come in. Most ads have a trial period before they actually start showing results, especially when starting from nothing. If you have the budget to invest and the trust and patience to give the ads a real chance, then it is worthwhile. Linkedin ads can be set to specifically target a certain audience and be as personable as you’d like.
“If you don’t market yourself, who will?” is an appropriate way to look at advertising. LinkedIn is a platform created for professionals to connect. Using ads to give your company a greater audience and reach in the professional world is welcomed and if you are good at what you do, it will only bring your business more success in the long run.
